The monastery includes the smallest church in Bucharest, the inside walls covered with the most beautiful frescoes, and having a glorious iconostasis. There are frescoes on the outside, too, and a delightful little cloister. Stunning.

There are better churches in the world but it is a good option to visit it, if you go to the Bucuresti old town.

The age of this church attached to a monastery with centuries old paintings on the wall and ceiling amazes.

Situated in the hottest point in Bucharest, near restaurants and pubs, is one little church that reminds of the old Bucharest. A real jewel of Romanian architecture, a place where you can find peace and tranquility.

Hi, no there is not an entry fee. It is a monastery still functioning as a pilgrimage site, not a monument. No waiting time to enter. I don't know the time scedule, we 've been there around noon and it was open. I hope... More
